5 minute weather observations at the Marginal Land Experiment sites

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

5 minute weather observations from the marginal land sites. Presently we only have weather data from the Michigan South site (Lux Arbor Reserve).

This datatable is part of the MLE – Rainfall Exclusion Experiment dataset. This dataset contains data from Rainfall Exclusion Experiment at Marginal Land Sites. The purpose of the experiment is to learn the drought effects on switchgrass. Data in this dataset can also be found in the dataset of Marginal Land Experiment.
